THWACK RACKET From the Backhand King
Recently i saw this news online. Anyone knows the availability of these rackets?
Although i can execute good backhand stuff, i am still quite impressed about this unique and cool features of the racket as it have "thumb print" to assist for the play with backhand/forehand shots. Importantly, it is demonstrated by the former champion xiong guo bao who is renowned by his backhand!

saw this racket quite a while back in magazine. the concept is similar to some of the golf practise grip just that it is to the badminton racket. think e78 might have it as well. I never seen this in Singapore before though.

Which model are you looking for? for left or right handed? I should be able to get them. Tried the left hand grip one before, but i am not left handed.

Rackets were launched in singapore last week.
Will be available soon through badminton-life.org and other shops.
They come in different gripsizes and left & right versions.

How will you put a grip on that..
"Balance: 320mm, Hardness 7.5".. sounds nice ;D

All the videos on here are pretty awesome, particularly with the backhand overhead grip for smashes, drops, and clears. Very informative. Even the "forehand net smash" I learned something with my smash form that I didn't before with the 90 degree angle between your shoulder and forearms for both left and right arms.
Aside from that, the grooves on the racket are definitely interesting and remind me of pencil grips to teach children correct grips early on lol (those didn't work for me though..)

Nice videos for sure! Thanks for the link.

pretty cool stuff. but 320 bp? a bit crazy. Dont the chinese call a light headed racket as a back-hand racket?
i like modifying my current racket by just cutting the grip from this

Please can someone tell me where I can buy this from? I have been trying to buy it for a few days now with no joy.
